Skip to comments.Trump boosts Kobach to disappointment of some in Kansas GOP
Posted on 08/06/2018 4:45:04 PM PDT by cotton1706
Kris Kobach has emerged as the outright favorite to win the GOP nomination in Tuesdays gubernatorial primary after winning an endorsement via Twitter from President Trump.
Trumps tweet calling Kobach a fantastic guy came just hours before the polls open, and represents the first time the president has endorsed a candidate running against a Republican incumbent in a primary. The unlucky incumbent is Gov. Jeff Colyer (R), a former surgeon with years of experience in the state legislature, and a far more traditional candidate than Kobach has been.
Trumps tweet is one that Republicans in the state had hoped to avoid. Many fear Kobach could be a weak general election candidate, and they had hoped to hold him off in the primary.
If Kobachs the nominee, then Republicans are in a bind, one top national Republican told The Hill, seeking anonymity to avoid being seen opposing Trumps choice.
The president is on a big winning streak in GOP primaries, taking victories recently in South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama and further putting his stamp on the Republican Party.

Isn’t Kansas where that libtard Ben Sasse hangs out?
He’s from Nebraska.
Kansas’ senators are Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran. But they’re not great.
Another opinion piece from the Hill.
The Hill scumbag publication expresses their disappointment.
Kris wants to end the third world invasion....the GOPe not so much.
President Trump has endorsed phony conservatives, too.
McCain, Romney, Heller.
Yes, Kobach has long been on the side of the citizens and the rule of law unlike the Bush League Republicans who are still hell bent on making America into North Mexico.
Joe Arpaio has squandered his legacy just to be a blocker so the Cheap Labor Express can get another Amnesty Senator, McSallycain.
I sent him money for his elections as Sheriff in AZ even though I live in VA. I really thought he was on our side.
Ticks me off.
If Republicans would knock that crap off they win a lot more elections.
Kris has been with us for decades.
More like The Shill.
This left wing rag is peddling the Big Ag lobbyist trolls / cheap labor express and their puppets political hacks nonsense .
More BS from the left wing rag to help divide and conquer .
The Shill is all lies all the time.
The Globalists Gope would rather lose an election than their dear cheap illegal labor .
glad to see you’re right
on top of that
He needs to stop doing that, it never works out for him to be nice to the Bush League Republicans.
They never reciprocate.
In the 2016 Republican Presidential race, Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump 48-23% in the Kansas caucuses. That tells us all we need to know about the local KS GOP.
I’ll be voting for Kris Kobach tomorrow morning. I liked him as Secretary of State (of Kansas,) and his work against the open borders crowd.
